I complimented Mr. Wilfer of Warwick with the bass. He asked me where I found it and I told him. Knowing him he shut down the link, haha!

Well, it's different, all right. Not sure that I like it. I give Warwick credit for trying different designs.

It looks like an EB-2 melt-morphing into a Thunderbird.

I'd play that. It has a graceful look to it, and I actually like the look better than the normal Warwicks.
Good sloppy playing is an art in itself. (Uwe)

It looks like they're trying to tempt Nikki Sixx away from Schecter with that one. He can have it.
Contrary to what James Bond says, a good Gibson should be stirred, not shaken.

The guitar versions have different colours in raised part and lower part and they are very strangely put together. Almost like a jigsaw. That isn't quite clear at this pic.

But look at these guitars:

I think they're beautiful. Those guitars I mean.
But the bass guitars always have the "scared hare ears". And ugly headstock shape.

I've almost fallen in love with those guitars! The bass....nah....to me there's something about the controls, pickups and hardware on the body (both proportions and placement) that ruins the esthetics of the body lines.
